These Five DEADLY Breast Cancer Myths are Putting Your Life at Risk

October 24th, 2014
It’s one of the most devastating diseases a woman can face… But there are some dangerous breast cancer myths out there making things even worse.

Last week, we told Health Watch readers about the five easiest fixes for lowering breast cancer risk. It’s valuable information that readers shared with loved ones. And it got people talking…

But there’s so much more you need to know about breast cancer. Namely, some dangerous myths out there… Most of them come from so-called experts in the medical community. So we’re dedicating this week’s Friday Five to clearing the air—once and for all—about breast cancer.

Here are five breast cancer myths putting your life in danger:

1. Antidepressants Can’t Raise Your Risk: SSRIs like paroxetine are among the most prescribed drugs in America. Aside from the typical—scary—side effects, it also raises estrogen levels. This disrupts your natural hormone production. It makes you more likely to develop a breast tumor. And if you already have breast cancer, the situation could be even worse…

That’s because 70% of breast cancers are sensitive to estrogen. This means it could make the cancer even more aggressive. And if you’re going through “conventional” cancer treatment while taking an antidepressant, your risk of dying from breast cancer goes up by over 90%.

This Sugary Beverage is Cutting Your Life Short

It’s one of the worst processed foods you can put in your body… But drinking soda goes beyond raising metabolic risk factors. It could shorten your lifespan.

Halloween is a little over a week away… Candy bars, chocolates, and other sweets are right in your face in most grocers. But the problems with eating sugar go way beyond your waistline…

A new study shows that drinking sugary sodas may age your cells as much as smoking.

This Popular Treatment isn’t Just Worthless… It’s Deadly

Estrogen therapy may be your doctor’s choice for fighting menopause symptoms…even saving your heart. Too bad it’s a worthless—even deadly—treatment.

There’s a myth among experts… It’s that too little estrogen could be enough to raise women’s risk of having heart problems.1 To them, it’s no cause to worry. They say this therapy can prevent heart complications as a result of menopause…

But a recent study confirms that’s just not the case.

What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Diabetes…

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise… Your doctor may not know how to treat it without a prescription. But depending on your age and the severity of your disease, you may be better off not treating it at all.

Over 30 million Americans have diabetes. But even more frightening? About 90 million more over the age of 20 are pre-diabetic.

This is a major health crisis. Having diabetes isn’t just an inconvenience. It puts you at risk for heart problems, blindness, kidney disease, and amputations.1 The myth pushed by doctors is that the disease is more manageable than it used to be. They say people are living normal—longer—lives because of the drugs available to them. But here’s the thing…

Big Pharma’s “solutions” may do more damage to your body than the disease itself.
